I always knew I had a little bit of crazy in me but after I made this Bachelor Board I realized just how much crazy I had inside! I love competition style shows!! I love to guess and predict who will win. Survivor is another one of my favorites. With Bachelor though it’s hard to remember all of their names and who got eliminated. Even though the show is 2 WHOLE HOURS long we still can’t keep them all straight. Half of them get barely any screen time and so I get confused. I have one friend who can remember every name of practically every contestant from every season. She is a rare gem though…So I made this board so we could keep it all straight! Plus I mean c’mon a Bachelor Board is just so funny and such a wonderful addition to any group of girls that get’s together and watches Bachelor on Monday nights!
Let me walk you through how I made it so you can make one too.
- .88 Walmart Cardboard trifold board
- Velcro Dots
- cardstock or any paper you have on hand
- poster board to cover cardboard
- OPTIONAL: Laminator and Silhouette
First you need an .88 trifold cardboard board. They are found at Walmart in the poster board section. I also picked up 2 red poster boards to cover the cardboard with.
Once you’ve covered your board with red poster board you need to print out the faces of all the girls, the host, and the Bachelor. I made it easy for you here by putting them all together for you. Just print these Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 and then I laminated mine because well I’m crazy!! But you don’t have to laminate them. They’ll be eliminated soon and they don’t need to last a long time.
Next up I cut out the faces with scissors, and used some velcro dots to attach the faces to the board. I wanted to be able to move them around and make predictions and also put them on the Elimination side once they get the cut.
I used my Silhouette to cut out the words and the broken heart. Just type up your words and have your Silhouette cut them out for you on cardstock or whatever paper you have on hand.
I tried really hard to be kind with my predictions and categories. I get that this is a funny reality show but they are also REAL people. I know Arie probably isn’t reading my DIY Blog but you just never know who might see something like this. I posted a insta story recently with a sneak peek of this board and Abc Bachelor put it on their insta stories. Also I think we could all do a better job of spreading kindness instead of picking apart these women, their appearances, and what they are wearing. I’m totally speaking to myself right now haha! I need to remember they are human beings not cartoon characters. Okay I’m hopping off my soap box!
And there you have it! Your Bachelor Board will make those Bachelor Monday nights even more fun. You could even do prizes for correct predictions and make it a really fun weekly tradition!
As I was making this I kept laughing to myself and saying ” I need to get a life!” hahaha
If you make one PLEASE dm me or email a picture I’d love to know I”m not the only crazy out there!! : ) I’m okay with crazy though!
Happy Bachelor watching!
